We stayed for one night, last weekend, as our friends were getting married nearby. It was our first time in the area and we can't thank the hosts enough for all their help. Colin was extremely welcoming on our arrival and he was able to sort out our logistics for getting to and from the wedding at Sugar Loaf Barn. We had a very comfortable night's sleep and the breakfast the following morning was superb! What a wonderful first stay in the area and hopefully, we will return in the near future!
We stayed here for three nights and it was very much worth the search: it was a bit hard to find. But the place makes up for any inconviniences no matter what!
The reception was most heartly and warm. The "tour around the house" was friendly and clear and the room/bed/comfort was great. The breakfast-room is the most stunningly place I have had the privelidge to eat in! With a view so beautifull you can almost forget to eat....
Collin, Paul and Sarah are the best!!
We spent eight days here. Everyone, Colin, Paul and Sarah were very anxious to make sure we enjoyed our visit and went beyond the expected to make our visit great. I got some really great advice on local attractions and day trips. Be sure to take the hike to Sugarloaf if you stay there.
A very professionally run b and b business by an originally-farming family (now a farmer, a solicitor, a butcher - and a retired border collie sheepdog!). Very welcoming and accommodating. Will help in whatever way they can. Breakfast very good with local produce. Hard to see where any improvements could be made. For those with ambitions to climb the Sugar Loaf (on the opposite side of the valley), take Colin's advice and find the car park half way up the mountain on the south side above the vineyard. Even feasible from there for a septuagenarian! The drive north through the Black Mountains towards Hay On Wye is a must. Plan to stop at the two little churches en-route - at Cwmyoy and Capel y Ffin - 2 absolutely "must sees", if only to get a reel feel for that lovely valley
Stayed for one night on a motorbike trip around Wales. Colin & his old sheepdog maximillion made us feel very welcome. The views are stunning & the house is absolutely beautiful! Please do put it on your list of places that you must stay! The bedroom was beautiful & very comfortable. The breakfast was yummy! Colin is a farmer by trade and has opened a B&B in his home to help his farm - it is idyllic.
Thank you Colin & give max a hug from me!
Two things struck us about this unique b&b - first, the rolling hills visible as far as the eye can see, such a treat for Londoners, and secondly the generous size of the bedroom and en suite bathroom. Definitely book the "Superior en suite" you won't be disappointed. Colin and Sarah are exceptionally welcoming and cooked us really delicious breakfasts which you eat with other guests around a dining room table, again with a view of green hills and blue skies. Sugarloaf is a 5 minute drive away so you can park and do the walk up it. If you book here - one word of caution - print out and bring the booking confirmation from Sarah with you- you will need the directions. There is no network signal once you leave Abergavenny so don't make the same mistake we did and try winging it on your smartphone - we had to drive back to town and call the b&b from there to get directions!
A purpose built B&B in the countryside outside Abervagenny. It was a little difficult to get to down the very narrow lanes, but more than worth it. The views from all parts of the property are quintessential Wales. The proprietors are extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was comprehensive, as were the in room facilities. A true rural idyll.
